Uguns rituāls/Fire Ritual (2007)
– Gathering at the Holy Site
– Evocations of the Gods
– Sacrifice and Walking in a Circle

Ancient Baltic tribes usually celebrated the Fire Ritual four times a year: on the summer and winter solstices, and during the fall and spring equinoxes, when day and night were of equal length. In the fall, people expressed their thanks for the harvest; in the winter they sank deeply into thought and burned all their negative energy, emotions, and illnesses; in the spring they purified themselves and prayed for success in their farm work; and in the summer they worshiped the Sun. An important part of the Fire Ritual is to move in a circle. The circle has neither a beginning nor an end, neither time nor existence. It demands to be right here and right now, so we can share with it and be unified in love and truth.
